As soon as the needle went in for the second round of the Covid vaccine, my arm was sore. That wasn’t the case with the first shot though a week after my upper arm started itching and swelled up. I guess that is what you’d call a delayed reaction.
With both shots, I got a headache almost immediately and was very sleepy. Fortunately, both were in the early evening so it was OK to go to bed before 9 PM.
Seldom am I sick, but a couple of weeks ago I woke feeling very lightheaded and a bit nauseous. As the day went on, all I wanted to do was sleep which was more than a bit unusual.
Guess what? This morning I woke feeling the very same way which is making me think that both instances are a reaction to the vaccine. This time it just happened a little quicker. Certainly nothing serious, just a little inconvenient.
Today I’ve made no effort to do anything but read and nap knowing this will pass in a day or two. With that in mind, I allowed myself a little pampering in a tub filled with bubbles. It was a struggle to stay awake nestled in bubbly warm water.
I know many of you are waiting for the vaccine, and I hope your experience is as seamless as ours at Houston’s Methodist Hospital that was so well organized and efficient. Many kudos!
If you’ve had the vaccine, perhaps you can share your after effects. Hopefully, they were little more than a sore arm and a woozy feeling.
